identified f.b.i. agents and questioned about julian assange the weekly leaks website says mr zimmerman was swept and with arrest and imprisonment when he asked about his rights this all happened after his interview with mr arsalan where they talked cyber security and freedom in the face of ever expanding government surveillance here is a bit of it don't miss the whole thing here on r.t. running all day no doubt some sites technology enables those also the ends of every communication then there is do do do the other side of the coin is what we do with it we could admit that for which you go to talk to go to one there are some indeed some legitimate use investigators investigating them but goes nowhere but goes and so on may need under the supervision of the judicial authority to be able to use. such tools but the question is where to draw these judicial supervision where to go to the control that the citizens can have over the use of the state the jews and
this is a policy should so there was jeremy and a bit earlier and now the guest of the show internet freedom activists mari mccarthy the co-founder of the icelandic digital freedom society he too was stopped at the airport and questioned by u.s. officials about julian assange he says he was later followed and approached by three u.s. officials in washington late at night and asked to become an informer sounds like something from a movie as far as the number of people detained or arrested shortly before or after the show might be breaking some television record among other guests there was the president of the center for human rights and i believe our job was beaten up at bahrain international airport and held in prison for almost a month after recording an interview with julian assange so what can we expect as a few now court has also raised mr songes extradition to sweden his. lawyers have
less than two weeks to contest that decision in sweden he's facing quite thin allegations of sexual assault which reportedly had to do with consensual but unprotected sex but his supporters are saying it's not a songes unprotected sex that they're looking into but rather a way to get him to sweden where it would be arguably easier to hand him over to the united states judging by the reports about people being interrogated one might say that the u.s. is building a case against julian assange. but you can watch the latest episode of judas on the show here on r.t. starting from eleven thirty g.m.t. . free from prejudices and stereotypes that's how president putin has defined russia's ties with china as he looks east for the next three days the neighbors are seeing eye to eye in major international disputes such as the syrian conflict and should concern of u.s. expansion in the asia pacific region next year show ski he is in beijing for us.
well that's not only just a visit any just official visit it's a state visit the first one since i've been put in became the president so unless you have some certain details about its protocol because as we know any president of any country can perform only one state visit to any country during his captaincy certainly this outlines how important this visit is and for some experts this has already been a declaration of intent and the declaration of a live event which is the show that the foreign policy of russia with his new term will not change and i first went to europe now if you go straight china basically the relations between moscow and beijing have been very strong over the past several decades the trade turnover has been reaching one hundred billion dollars in its turn over every year so definitely this is russia's closest ally not only in terms of economic ties but also on very many international issues as well just in particular the syrian issue within the u.n. security council russia and china seem to have a unified position now suddenly this this visit will be interesting with lots of on
its agenda to talk about what this visit could mean for the ties we're joined live here in beijing by mr young see you from the chinese central international studies as always we're talking about the four nations we know that china and russia have a unified position on syria can we expect some kind of statement to produce than that during the visit of course i think the twentieth there are. great country this we will address this is a very hot he said. that hard being the. difference as a patron of russia china and to some by some that are up in countries from china and the russian perspective the key solution lysine. the implementation and that's a plan rather than lice and whether or not we should the public. the existing government that that is not the key so i think the chinese position on syria still is a small responsible and deciding to have permanent on the final solution to the press
. thank you so much this was mr yancy you from the chinese central international studies now certainly will be following this visit all two days as it's here and we'll be bringing all the latest details to our viewers every time we get new information. but r.t. talked to arvind subramanian who's a senior fellow at the center for global development he thinks china has all that's needed to run the u.s. economy is a preview of what's coming up for you next hour. at the moment china's g.d.p. for example is smaller than that of the united states. but if you measure it in terms of purchasing power it's as big as the united states one second china is already the world's largest trade. three china is a net creditor to the world it finances the u.s. and the u.s. is a debtor so it's this combination of the size of the economy the fact the big trader and the fact that it's a creditor confers on it
a lot of power today and over the next ten fifteen years all these numbers are going to go in china's favor so the china is going to become an even bigger economy than the u.s. and even bigger trade of the u.s. . be un chief has rejected calls from syria's rebels to impose a no fly zone over the country to help bring down president i said the man for the statement from the fighters saying that no longer committed to the international truce plan proposed by special envoy kofi annan the rebels claim a dozens of government soldiers were killed in clashes in the security checkpoints over the last few days it comes amid growing voices from the u.s. and its allies. that's amid reports of plans to set up military camps in syria which will only bring more bloodshed in the middle east blog culture. i think it will actually increase the law. of revenge killings kind of sectarian
tension along mixed areas where kind of revenge operations would start to happen and it will suck more and more people in i think syria now it is not that tipping point where the conflict can be pulled back from a. sectarian civil war to kind of some form of political framework but once there is actively groups on the ground in syria and whatever kind of for me though they are in there they are likely to increase the prospect of bloodshed. still to come in just a few minutes here in l a t paying the price for thanks the buzz an open house is here that sells seriously out of pocket i think dubai copycats are in a rise in forgeries. america's defense chief has resumes touting his arms catalog around the asia pacific region with india the latest sales target they opened tours last seen by experts as
a red rag to china the same time firing up hot spots that has gone to another high ranking u.s. official second to state clinton to the south caucasus but i don't want to seem to be a wolf advisory country risk solutions that lose america is less concerned in security with a shift in power in the region that. secretary of state clinton is looking to achieve in the caucasus what america is trying to achieve more overall around the world and that is to continue to enhance its image and its ability to influence what's going on in the region the caucuses have been largely ignored by america for a great deal of time and now that there's a resurgence of russian influence in the region it's only natural that america would want to do something in return there are pockets of conflict in the region that concern the united states and the concerns of course other regional powers but let's not forget where the caucasus is located it's in russia's backyard it's only
natural that russia's historical relationship with the region and the various countries would be superior to that of america certainly at the present time mrs clinton's biggest influence is likely to occur in georgia let's not forget that georgia has had a historically close relationship with united states for a number of years now and that it was particularly close during the bush era georgia certainly seems to want to be heading in the direction of nato and i think that she is likeliest to see the most success and the most influence there. well don't hesitate to log onto our web site r.t. dot com we've got the latest news and updates there as well as any stories you may have missed some of what's there few right now no promise land from migrants the israeli government sends a go away message to africans prime minister calling for mass deportation for human rights groups describe the expulsion as immoral. and post revolution
libya see shooting and balance once again militia group uses armored vehicles to capture the main airport in tripoli military chaos drags the country back into bloodshed. braces itself for the largest rally seen in months calling for the execution of ousted president barack the muslim brotherhoods presidential candidate is looking to use the protests to wipe out his rival even before round two of the vote. join the cause of revolutionary groups for a million man march on tuesday to capitalize on the mubarak sentiment tom barton reports now from an egypt which could again be sliding into instability. revolution renewed but these protesters never expected to be back in time risk where just
a year after they ousted the dictatorial president hosni mubarak he's now serving a life sentence but after thirty years in power toppling the system he built is proving to be an even harder task than toppling the man everything is like could lapsing from at all just economy so this gave me the impression is that probably be one will not you know rise again as they are already exhausted or too exhausted to go to the square and protest again but it's really impressive they went again and the op now protesting dalia has been involved with egypt's revolution from the beginning she works to monitor civil and political developments in the country or lack of them many egyptians are dismayed that little if anything has changed under the ruling supremum council of the armed forces or skaf in fact we see that. is continuing mubarak's regime and offering only very minimal
sessions to that evolution whenever he has to these demonstrations erupted after the notorious court decision that not only spared mubarak's life but acquitted his sons and six former security officials protesters say the second insult is the heavily criticized presidential runoff election a street choice between the old guard in the form of an x. mubarak man and the religiously conservative muslim brotherhood i don't think injured or politically if they were in the next four years. surgical operations will be reaching with syria for. forty. three years but i think we're being more storyboarded. successful others believe more time is needed even though it may be a bumpy ride people did not go to. squares and streets again to protest this also to make punches in the face more there's
a saying this is their last chance to win begs their country but until then the revolutionaries plan to fight on which brings us back to real. protestors here have described their removed revolution to me rather like a train determined not to have it the rails either by religious hardliners by the regime but they're equally desperate to stop it running out of steam lest egypt go off on the wrong track altogether tom watson arts east africa square cairo. now a look at some other stories making headlines around the world the jury's presence and good luck jonathan has visited the site of sunday's plane crash which killed at least one hundred fifty three people he's promised an inquiry after all on board died in the emergency crews fearing many lives have been lost on the ground as well exact cause still isn't known but the pilot wanted engine trouble claims the plane was too old to be in service it's nigeria's worst and has asked you know most
twenty years. at least eleven people have been killed and thirteen injured in a bus crash in northern mexico two children were among those who died when the vehicle plunged into a ravine there were reports of problems with the brakes with witnesses saying the driver was speeding he's since been taken into police custody. credit ratings giants doesn't pause have predicted a one in three chance of greece leaving the eurozone countries general election later this month left wing syriza party predicted to win the poll has vowed to cancel the country's bailout deal if elected comes after an inconclusive result greece has been under strict terms to cut spending that's a protest. on the strive to keep greece within the eurozone he said but many economists increasingly resemble fast but seven thirty g.m.t. our financial guru max kaiser reveals what he believes is behind it is what's
coming up. at worst means more money printing for the banks and they've already priced that into their stocks and their bonuses what they're really afraid of is that a country finds its inner gonads and decides to become politically independent that's what they're fearful of a country standing up for itself they want iceland to be just contained they don't want greece to stand up they don't want ireland to stand up or stop because then they would tell the bankers to stop it that's the real problem they threaten this financial terrorism which is false it's false these are false attacks it was a false attack in two thousand and eight it was a concocted cover cooked attack a man a lot of it's a false attorney. now they say a picture is worth a thousand words but in the art world talking billions of dollars that's if the genuine article but with forgeries on the rise it's getting increasingly hard for
bias an auction houses alike to spot the fakes as artie's or smith explains some don't find out it's too late. important works of art go under the hammer every day in london's west end but how can our love is be sure of what they're buying according to scotland yard a staggering fifty percent of. what we're looking at these days is a very considerable increase in freaking twentieth century or so i've seen a number of provincial houses and and of those. so fakes. are considerable scale and i think it's something that we we will accept a lot of forgeries to. websites but it's not just internet by it's he can be taken in by the food which is brush the latest auction house to come into the
spotlight with christie's which is involved enough. i called back to with russian tycoon victim back solberg he paid more than two and a half million dollars for a painting he thought was by prominent russian artist buddies costello death only to find out later that it appears to have been signed for several years after death the case will go on for nineteen days and according to experts will probably cost more than the painting itself which is one reason why more of these claims don't go to court but another buyer of russian art when confronted with lemons made lemonade eager to see a course discovered his art collection meant to fund his retirement was mostly forgeries now he's displaying the paintings as a warning to others. when we have gone dog of our money where ashamed to talk of it i'm trying to be the first who says don't be ashamed of showing us because we believe you who no one would doubt now that time has passed and we
realize we made a mistake and it's important to publicize the mistake because the quantity of russian figs is such that it discredits national art. busiek or for showing each of his pictures alongside two different citic tickets one attesting the painting is genuine and one proving its board sometimes that even signed by the same person and his collection is just the tip of the iceberg i think there's going to be a lot more this could be quite high profile prosecutions in the u.k. on the journey of so-called master forger's and what those cases of appeal there's still some excellent fakes for hundreds of excellent fakes have been placed on the market and maybe that's just a very small part of it how croft's message is clear it doesn't matter whether you're buying off the internet or as a reputable auction house buyer beware nora smith r.t.
london. well to see what's happening in the world of business no. more drama for to understand what's going on no. that's right this time it's another lawsuit over has to do with all deal the didn't go through with raul stuff but i'll tell you about that in a second it seems that it never ends that story well first international markets will start with asia which is still be only one trading this hour before the markets open in about half an hour from now as you can see it's all in paul's the territory the nikkei is adding almost one percent this hour and investors are in general feeling more optimistic in fact hong kong shares are valid after a war day losing streak now the reason for this optimism is the fact that investors feel that policymakers will finally take action and do something to stem growing concerns over the global economy and now look at u.s. markets and how the session and that there on monday as you can see there
a mixed picture and managed to escape form of four day losing streak have unset that many of the u.s. blue chips did and the session lower and investors there are more confident that the european central bank and the federal reserve will interact more money and the economy over in europe markets ended lower dragged down by german shares and that's over concerns of a slowing growth both in the united states as well as and china at the foot seawall so close on monday and will be today as well for the jubilee celebrations in the u.k. of course now what we do know is that banking stocks in germany did manage to rebound and that's because as i said some investors are more confident that europe will take action to help its financial sector now we do know that there are two banks a former chief executive officer said that germany will quote alternately take whatever steps necessary to keep the euro zone and it's had and also later today there will be an emergency conference call on europe by the g. seven major economies so we'll be looking out for that and see what comes out from
that meeting well. here in russia it's now an hour ahead of the opening bell to talk to trade in session on monday but both the arts yes and the mindsets manage the post of games with the r.t.s. almost and then one percent in the black for monday now if we take a look at the current season and see what's happening within your in the ruble the euro is again and again the u.s. dollar when it comes to the ruble it lost to the euro but added slightly. against the greenback and of that it will discover that of course next hour now when it comes to crude it's again in for a second day which is always great news for the russian economy and that's so news that you have stockpiles show that they have fallen for the first time in the eleven weeks that report is coming out later this week so we'll see if that comes through or not well in other news there are problems and never arise and one of the oldest airlines in the world wants ours which is australia's flying carrier expects its profits to fall by as much as ninety percent that's amid growing losses at its
international operations and its highest ever fuel bill it shares dropped around eighteen percent after this announcement. and as i said earlier the dispute between the co-owners of b.p. now gets and needs worse this time the company's minority shareholders are suing b.p. over compensation that they're claiming fourteen billion dollars is what they demand and that's over b.p.'s failed arctic deal with rosneft now they say b.p. suffered losses as it was invited into the exploration project which was later on the blog by the russian co-owners of the venture earlier on the chords declined similar lawsuits saying they were unfounded and this renewal of the claim followed news of a possible sale of b.p.'s fifty percent stake in seeing me. always be the piano it's very hard for your viewers to follow if they don't know the story but what can we do that's the only way we can sell the story very very well. so you do
a threat. but you know if you keep spending a trillion dollars a year on weapons officially you're going to blow everybody up you you know people are dying from these weapons but until we actually see if people don't wake up to nuclear weapons or a bill. that represents all of the firepower of the second world war this. is the equivalent. of the world's nuclear arsenal today. little. older little. clip.
this is r t the headlines now america closes the net around to the songs for the f.b.i. now harrison has of contacts for the current attempt to gather debt on the world's most famous. eastern union that putin is looking for some of china's economic fortune cookies in moscow and beijing continue to read from the same page when it comes to well put. egypt's muslim brotherhood sides with. protests from barracks executions in utah also sweep aside the presidential election right before anyone even votes. program talks to eminent russian conductor.
